Staley Library, Millikin University

These items are contributed by Staley Library, Millikin University. Digitized materials from the Millikin University Archives at Staley Library. Millikin University was founded in 1901 by James Millikin as a university that would embrace the "practical" side of learning along with the "literary and classical;" and, while affiliated with the Presbyterian Church, it would not be narrowly "sectarian" and would remain open to all. It opened for classes in September of 1903. Albert Reynolds Taylor was Millikin's first president, and author of a biography of James Millikin, as well as his own autobiography and other publications on education. The Millidek, Millikin University's yearbook, was published from 1906 to 1999. The Decaturian, Millikin University's student newspaper, was first published in October 1903 and is still in publication today. Decaturian issues from 1903-May, 1951 are digitized online in the CARLI Digital Collections.
